The Fitzgerald-Ben Hill Co. Chamber of Commerce is sending prayers to all those that may be in the path of
Hurricane Florence.

Communication will be updated as necessary by the Ben Hill Co Office of Emergency Management in
Fitzgerald - Ben Hill County.

High impacts from #Florence likely to stay out of our forecast area, but low chances for tropical storm winds are possible east of I-75 late Saturday into Sunday. High uncertainty.

Have friends or family in parts of Georgia and N./S. Carolina that could be impacted by #HurricaneFlorence? Help them find their local U.S. National Weather Service (NWS) office by urging them to visit http://weather.gov/socialmedia . Each office will provide a local interpretation of the National Hurricane Center forecasts!

Updated information will be on the Ben Hill Co. Office of Emergency Management FACEBOOK page.

"I am proud to say for two years in-a-row, the Georgia Chamber has been named Chamber of the Year by two organizations," said Georgia Chamber President & CEO, Chris Clark. "We are incredibly honored to receive this award and join a list of past recipients who have worked diligently to improve the quality of life and business climate statewide.

The purpose of the annual State Chamber of the Year award is to bring attention to innovative initiatives and best practices that advance a state chamber's mission and work and to provide deserved recognition to state chambers and their leaders who have distinguished themselves by providing exceptional services and results for their members.
